noted, president obama didn't bring it up in the debate when he had a chance, talking about the economy, talking about all these folks who are unemployed or underemployed, and it would seem to indicate that president obama was saying that this was not worth pursuing. he certainly had used it on the campaign trail. it's been used in ads. but standing there on the debate stage, he apparently made the choice that it was unworthy of him and unworthy of the audience. will joe biden bring it up next week in his vice presidential debate? he may. we'll find out. >> it might have been a strategy, too. maria what do you think? >> i actually think it was a missed opportunity, randi. he should have brought it up. but i will guarantee you that democrats, including joe biden, will absolutely continue to bring it up, because after he said he thought he was wrong, or before he said he thought he was wrong, he doubled down on those remarks two or three times before he realized it was really hurting him in the polls. and we're talking about latinos this morning. majority of latinos are in that 47%, inclu
and unexpected thing for voters who all expected president obama to win. >> let's talk about the 47%. we all know before the debate romney was on tape writing off half of americans as obama supporters say they rely on the government for the handouts. after the debate, he made this about face. listen to what he told sean hannity on fox. >> clearly in a campaign with not hundreds of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that is just completely wrong. >> completely wrong. now, why wait 17 days? is this an attempt to reconnect with voters maybe after that damage had been done? >> i hope it is. and i also think it means that he's feeling very comfortable about the republican base. you know, we saw him do things in the debate, randi, like, for example, talk about his health care plan in massachusetts, own it. one of the first times we have seen him do it and i can't tell you how happy i am to see him say that he misspoke. that it was completely wrong that statement about the 47% because i know there are repu
